What happened to “We the People”?

By Debbie Leininger, staff writer

     ‘We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.’* (Preamble to the Constitution of United States)

     ‘We the People,’ by God’s providence, formed the Constitution of the United States of America. It was a ‘Model of Liberty.’ Its laws favored no people and insured peace and protection for its citizens. It promoted prosperity and every liberty imaginable to a free nation.

      America became the greatest nation on earth. ‘We the People’ were united by freedom’s cause. There were no bounds of opportunity in our free society. ‘We the People’ dreamed big dreams – and Yankee ingenuity yielded abundant fulfillment.  ‘We the People’ could speak freely, worship freely, and teach our children the benefits of living in a republic, where all were represented equally. ‘We the People’ could afford to generously help other nations.  America enjoyed the ‘Blessings of Liberty.’

     ‘We the People’ began to tire from the responsibilities that come with Liberty and allowed ‘We the Government’ to take its place. It was fine at first.  After all, ‘We the Government’ had done a good job of writing laws and defending the nation. ‘We the Government’ assumed the role of overseeing ‘Education’ and ‘Social Services.’

      ‘We the People’ thought that was a good idea. Now ‘We the People’ could spend more time keeping up with ‘The Joneses’ and not worry about keeping up with the ‘Issues and Moral Obligations.’

     Because they had become enlightened, ‘Education’ and ‘Social Services’ wanted to play larger roles in ‘We the Government.’ They wanted ‘We the People’ to conform to their philosophies. ‘We the Government’ agreed and gave ‘Education’ and ‘Social Services’ full reign to indoctrinate ‘We the People.’

     Then ‘Lobbyists’ and ‘Business’ began to influence ‘We the Government.’ They offered perks to ‘We the Government’ workers.  As a result, ‘Lobbyists’ and ‘Business’ grew wealthy. ‘We the People’ thought this was fine because many of the perks given to ‘We the Government’ by ‘Business’ were also given to ‘We the People.’    

     ‘Lobbyists’ and ‘Business’ grew tired of ‘We the People.’ They and ‘We the Government’ thought that ‘We the World’ would be a better partner. After all, ‘We the People’ still stood for the Constitution that ‘We the People’ had formed. Unfortunately for ‘We the People,’ the Constitution no longer resembled the original document. While ‘We the People’ were enjoying the ‘Blessings of ‘Liberty,’ ‘We the Government’ and ‘We the World’ had enacted laws that replaced the rights on which ‘We the People’ stand.

     What happened to ‘We the People?’ Will the fate of ‘We the People’ ultimately be determined by ‘We the ‘Government’ and/or ‘We the World’?  The last chapter of history is yet to be written. . .

This day in history March 8

1957: The Democrats who ran the States of Georgia issued the Georgia Memorial to Congress, a petition to the U.S. Congress to declare the ratification of the 14th and 15th Amendments null and void. Those Democrats wanted to take away the freedom and civil rights of African Americans.  

Ugly episodes like this run all through the history of the Democrat Party. These  tactics are explained in my new book: Crooks thugs and bigots: the lost hidden and changed history of the Democratic Party

  1. If "We the People" don't begin the process of reclaiming our Rights and stopping the "invasion of the mind snatchers" who are out to join us to the World Community of Socialist states, then "We the People" will be no more and the America that was great FOR its people will soon become a footnote in history. People will exist only FOR the State and at the will of the State. People need to live on Principles and not for Materialism or Hedonism alone.

  2. As a nation, America has embraced every evil under heaven.
    As a nation, America has kicked God out the door.
    Then we wonder what happened when our nation falls apart.

    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20,21

    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galations 6:7

  3. Debbie,

    In fact I think it's more like We the People and THEY the government. A great article written a year or 2 ago describes DC elites as the "political ruling class." And that is precisely what this tightly knit group of power seekers and Constitution "ignorers" has become.

    You're right. Far too many turned their affairs over to them and most of us–at least those who pay the bills–have regretted it ever since.
